Sometimes 3ft while braking is a difference between having an accident or avoiding it.
It can happen at normal speeds on normal roads... Not only while racing on a track...
Tires are really not something to be cheap about...

I opted for the Michelin A/S 3's. I'm looking for a space saver spare before I get them put on.

In a similar situation as the OP, original runflats are done and looking for options. Living outside of Boulder, CO, my plan is to run dedicated winter tires but not sure if I should put them on my current 19" wheels and buy 20" wheels for summers or just another set of 19s. Any suggestions? Is there a big difference in performance between 20" and 19" wheels on a xDrive 35i? Anything else I should be considering?

I will definitely be moving away from run-flats, and I already have the space-saver spare in the trunk.

As far as I gather, the most recommended tires we seem to see are the Conti DWS 06, the Michelin Pilot Sport AS 3+, the Michelin Premier LTX, and possibly a couple others. I have the standard xLine non-staggered setup, so the 255/50/19s. Are people getting near the warranty distance on these tires above? Any other thoughts?
Just replaced my OEM Pirelli 255/50/19s with same at 47K. I really like those run flats so I went with the same thing

Iíve been reading great reviews of the nokian zline AS SUV all season in 255/50/r19. Any one have any experience with it?

So true ..all seasons are no seasons... this forum has an unhealthy obsession with all seasons and oem parts

Based on my experience, DWS06's are quite impressive. They are very smooth and grip well during summer days. Cornering is good also with these continental tires. The only negative I can say is that they have a tendency to lose their traction a bit in cold weather.
